Carissa Wilson is an associate in Crowell & Moring’s Washington, D.C. office. She is a member of both the firm’s Intellectual Property Group and the Mass Tort, Product, and Consumer Litigation Group. Her practice spans the product life cycle, from innovation to liability, and includes patents, trade secrets, trademarks, copyrights, and consumer product safety under the CPSA and PPPA.

Carissa received her J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School in 2020, where she served as co-president of the Intellectual Property Law Society and comments editor for the University of Chicago Legal Forum. She interned at the U.S. Department of Justice in the International Section of the Antitrust Division before joining Crowell & Moring as a summer associate.

Carissa’s passion for legal research and interdisciplinary approach to legal problem solving are demonstrated by her background. She was nominated by the University of Chicago’s law school faculty for the Casper Platt Award for the Outstanding Paper Written by a Law Student, based on her innovative research on the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement (CASE) Act. This research explored the intersection of intellectual property, administrative, and constitutional law. Carissa has additional research experience related to the administrative law of intellectual property agencies, as well as standards-essential patents and FRAND commitments.
